Meet Siena Detail

Dr. Jeffrey LindstromFaculty

“What I think makes Siena from other schools is the nature of the institution. Quite frankly, if you compare the psychology programs across institutions you are going to see a good deal of common elements, of overlap; every program has an introduction to psychology, every program has a developmental, abnormal, social, and the like. So in terms of choosing an undergraduate psychology program, I think you look at the nature of the institution, whether you feel comfortable there and whether people seem to notice you as a person… and that’s where I think Siena really shines.”

Teaching Philosophy

“I love teaching at Siena. The interactions with students, the exploration of ideas, and the mutual learning that occurs are all reasons why the classroom is a special place to be. I believe that teaching is a stewardship. As such, teaching can be a demanding vocation. But if the demands are great, so too are the joys and satisfactions. And that is also why so many of us here at Siena have such a deep devotion to the art and craft of teaching.”
